UCL Premier Division - Deeping Rangers 1 Oadby Town 1

Tuncay Korkmaz’s last league game at the Deeping Rangers helm ended in statemate.

They took a fifth-minute lead through Jezz Goldson-Williams.

A clearance from defence found him free down the left, he cut inside and chipped Elliot Taylor to find the net.

But Deeping missed other chances and were punished when Sam Hollis levelled for Oadby Town after 15 minutes.

Korkmaz – who was given a guard of honour before the game – said: “Of course, it was an emotional day because the club is so close to my heart.

“I will support Deeping whenever I can but I can’t fully commit to management due to my job.

“There are so many good people at the club and I thank them for all their support.

“This has been the best dressing room I’ve been in as all the lads have gelled really well and put in 100 per cent effort this season. I hope they stay together for the new management team.

“Over the past month I have been speaking to the club and our chairman over my role.

“I’d love to stay but the reality is that I would have to miss too many games. So I feel it’s the best decision for a new manager to come in.”

Korkmaz’s last game will be the Hinchingbrooke Cup final against Peterborough Northern Star to be played at Huntingdon Town’s Jubilee Park on Monday, May 11.

Deeping: Bircham, Flack, Smith, Tinkler, Braithwaite, Burton-Jones, Avis (Wright), Ginty (Palmer), Graham (Sparrow), Goldson-Williams, Hamid.
